Scene from the electric fireplace
8

Haven't been out to take pics since last weekend so I thought I'd take a snap of my electric fireplace. The room had to be completely dark to avoid reflections off the glass. Of course the M6 struggled to focus, but I ended up focusing with the lights on and changing to manual focus.

I was also playing around with different shutter speeds to see if a longer or shorter speed looked any more appealing. I found anything under 1 second or so didn't give me the effect I wanted but anything more than a few seconds and it really didn't make a difference.

EDITT: I just noticed some posterization along the top edges...:( oh well
